  1. Which coin would you rather have? I can’t decide.

    Definitely not the details one its pretty scratched and looks whizzed.Go with the straight graded one it has a better look to it and the grade is right although it appears to be scratched also.If it were me I wouldn't buy neither of them and just keep looking.

    I think you should decide for yourself.

    The 58 is the nicer of the two.

    Always better to go with a straight grade rather than a problem coin unless it has ugly toning or some other defect that affects eye appeal (in which case skip both)

  10. Okay I own both so I’ll sell the unc details and keep the au. I was leaning towards that but wanted to get your opinion

    @Oldhoopster i think you might of made the same mistake.Actually the op isn't looking to buy he/she owns them both and wants to know which one is better so the other one can be sold.Didn't see the title at first and the original post description sounded more like a buying deal.

    The amount you would get for the "Details" coin won't buy you a cup of coffee. I would keep both of them. It will always remind you what to look for when you buy a coin. I bought a 1904 Double Eagle Liberty Head (if that's how to refer to it) from a dealer. It was his estimate that the coin was at least a MS 61. I was knew, and I trusted him. It came back "Detail-Obv Scratched". He offered to buy it back for what I had in it, but I decided to keep it as an example.

    No mistake. Just offering some general advice that's applicable in this case as well as many other scenarios

    Ok your last part(in which case skip both) made me come to that conclusion.

    I believe the AU straight grade is nicer, but if you like the color of the details coin I would understand why.

    On the other hand..

    Why not both?

    "I think you might have made the same mistake." or "I think you might've made the same mistake."

    Your English teacher would be appalled.:eek:

    You made a good decision. Graded is certain, uncirculated details is a guess. Like your post, thanks.

    preposition
    [ˌprepəˈziSH(ə)n]
    NOUN
    grammar
    1. a word governing, and usually preceding, a noun or pronoun and expressing a relation to another word or element in the clause, as in “the man on the platform,” “she arrived after dinner,” “what did you do it for?”
    No, the sentence doesn't make sense. You don't use a preposition to modify a verb. You're the one who has been procrastinating.......learning English!
